but i think i got this. ♪ [ male announcer ] the all-new cla. starting at $29,900. welcome back. you're looking at live pictures of the u.s. capitol building in washington, d.c. we're now 12 and a half hours away from a possible shutdown of the federal government. we're talking midnight eastern time, 9:00 west coast time. if that does happen, the bay area will feel the pinch. we'll tell you more about that in just a couple of minutes. welcome back to "mornings on 2." i'm dave clark. let's check your weather and traffic. steve 's right there. i am. the system is falling apart over us. it's too far south. that was a whopper of a system.
not a lot left. the best we could find here was .25. st. helena, cazadero in there. and then really mild lows. some never dipped below 60s. that's for sure. we're already 60 to 66 right now. napa, 63 low. i know at the airport and also in town there's probably rain north of town which had the .02 at the airport. the system hanging up in the sierra nevada. for us, it's the low clouds. there's not much underneath that. partly sunny. areas of fog, though. cool for some, but very mild for others. could be drizzle or mist holding on. highs today, 60s and 70s. good morning, the traffic is doing pretty well. but is still slow in san jose and the south bay, steve. this is northbound 101, it's improved a little bit. but 280 is slow and so is 85.
things are getting better and the roads are dry. in oakland, we have a lot of slow traffic on 580 stretching back in san leandro now. it's become worse. 880 is slow from the coliseum up to the brick wall. bay bridge we've seen improvement. just a little bit of slow traffic there on the right-hand side. that's maybe about a fife- minute delay. it -- five-minute delay. it had been as long as 40 minutes. the new bay bridge is a big hit. more drivers are crossing the bridge since it opened. but more cars mean slower commutes. brian flores explains now in this live report. >> reporter: you mentioned heavier commutes on the bay bridge. right now, the eastern span, traffic going into san francisco right now, this is a typical morning commute. but some people say it's become a headache now for the commute in san francisco despite the fact there's the new bay bridge. others say it is showing how the bay area economy is showing
its strength. the chronicle examined westbound bridge traffic for the first two and a half weeks since it opened. according to their numbers and backed by the metropolitan transit commission. on average, there are 1600 more cars on the bridge than this time last year. the mtc says that's enough to fill an entire freeway lane for about 48 minutes. does more car means that's a bad thing? according to the state eight employment development v, there were 93,000 more people employed in the bay area which could explain why you may have noticed traffic on other bridges as well. but, of course, the major setback is the commute times with the added features of the bay bridge. commuter times were supposed to decrease. what the chronicle found out from toll plaza to fifth straight, it takes about 15 minutes. it was 13 minutes on the old bridge. traffic running smoothly. that changes in the afternoon. traffic commute times have increased from 14 minutes to 17
minutes in the afternoon. and increased ridership as well on b.a.r.t. and other transit agencies as well. we're live here just west of the toll plaza, brn flores, vu chael 2 news. >> thank you. 8:33. we now have exclusive new information about the horrific high-speed crash in san francisco on friday morning, the one that killed a 16-year- old boy. tara moriarty is joining us live from san francisco. what did you find out this morning? >> reporter: sources inside the sheriff's department told me that 58-year-old jenny zhu has been arrested on charges of vehicular manslaughter. she did post bail last night. we're not sure how much the amount was. she's not in jail here. we came to the outer sunset district to a home we believe was hers. she knocked on the door. she did not answer. obviously people have a lot of questions for her, including the friends of kevin sand. he was the one killed in the car crash early friday morning. police believe zhu is
responsible. people left flowers on the corner of pine and gough. police say zhu was driving at speeds up to 80 miles an hour in a silver mercedes suv for three entire city plox before she rear ended the victim's van. three other people in a catering van were hurt. sand was a junior at lincoln high school where he was a member of the rotc drum corps. there is there will be a display set up all week long to honor him. witnesses say zhu got out of the car, fell hadder to knees -- fell to her knees and grabbed her head. she was taken to the hospital and treated and released the same day. this case has not been presented to the district attorney's office. it typically takes two days force the police to file the

the current debate over gun control laws. tonight, pleasant hill may become the latest california city to impose tough new restrictions. the city council is set to require an ordinance requiring a police permit for gun dealers. under the same proposal, gun store workers would have to pass a criminal background checks. and gun stores would not be allowed to open near schools, parks or daycare centers. supporters say the ordinance would make pleasant hill safer but critics say it would create an unfair burden on gun dealers. more than 100 people arrested over the weekend at the beyond wonderland rave party. most of the arrests were drug- related. police in mountain view tweeted out this photo of some of the drugs seized during that two- day event at the shoreline amphitheater attracted 25,000 people. these bins were set up for people to dump their drugs.
police say along with the arrests, there were several noise complaints as well. a plan to close santa clara's downtown post office is very controversial. tonight the postal service will hold a meeting at santa clara city hall. a lot of residents say the 80- year-old building is important for the success of the downtown area. now, if that proposal passes. postal services would move to a building two miles away. that closure would be part of the postal service's efforts to reduce their costs. business owners in oakland are frustrated over a rise in break-ins and slow response from police. the surveillance video shows the third break-in at this bar in less than a week. on saturday, burglars stole several bottles of liquor. many owners think the same group is behind most of the 15 burglaries in the last three weeks. >> we've got fingerprints, dna, i've got a witness. word on the street, we know who
